. president barack obama signalled he wouldn't insist tax rates on upper income americans rise to clinton era peaks as part of the deal. the white house's flexibility first described by erskine bowles after meetings with mr. obama and others confirmed by administration officials could envision tax rates increasing from current levels to less than clinton era levels. so 37, 38%, is that enough for you? >> i would like to see the bush tax cuts for the upper income go away completely. with many people, myself included we don't want to negotiate against ourselves at the moment. there is going to have to be give and take. this will be a compromise. neither party can do it alone. there are pieces of this which i don't like. but those tax rates during the clinton years were pretty prosperous years. i think the american people would be happy to go back to the prosperity we enjoyed then. they weren't a damper on the economy. i think it fair that we go back to those rates. >> i understand not wanting to negotiate with yourselves but you have to negotiate with somebody. so -- yes or no -- would you sett
lies. >> listen, i want to ask you, one of the parts of the red line statement by president obama and secretary of state clinton, that if there was movement of any chemical weapons of mass destruction, movement -- now, as i listen to what you're saying, there hasn't been movement. it looks like they're getting ready where they are, but they haven't moved yet, so maybe they haven't violated the red line exactly. >> that's right, larry. they've got everything in place to do that. but what are the possibilities here? u.s. military officials say it would be very difficult to target certain areas. there are possibilities if they're going to load them on the planes. they could use cruise missiles to attack airstrips, for example. they can't blow up the weapons sites themselves, otherwise then the deadly gases could be spread among the public and kill thousands. the only other option according to some people that i've been talking to over the past couple of days is possibly take those cruise missiles and aim them not only at the airport strips, but at regime targets. even perhaps preside
. secretary of state clinton is underscoring president obama's warning that if the syrian government uses chemical weapons, the u.s. will take action. there's no evidence they've done more at this point than move the components around and it could be a bluff but officials believe they have access to several hundred missiles that could carry chemical warheads. we're back after the break. >>now let's get some real news.

've got a pen. i've still got a pen, i've still got a pen. >> president obama owes president clinton a great deal for helping him get elected. number one, we need a meaningful citizen education engagement effort with the white house in formada, next year to build the case for a grand bargain. the official version of what i did and what my colleagues did over the last several months and we need congressional hearings that will set the stage for tax reforms, social security reform and the president needs to negotiate privately and have discussions with congressional leaders of both parties privately. those three things can get us to the promt promise land. and without all three of those, we're in trouble. >> but, david, that is exactly what was supposed to happen between july of 2011 and today. and guess what? none of it has happened. none of it. we're having the same conversation. >> you know what? >> only the president can lead. only the president can lead. >> he has the pen. he has joe's pen. >> mine is a viagra pen. wouldn't that be embarrassing if he held that up and said i have a

with the ambassador voicing some new criticism of her initial account about libya. secretary of state clinton and president obama meanwhile are continuing to stand by rice. >> i still have many questions that remain unanswered. >> susan rice is extraordinary. couldn't be prouder of the job she has done in u.s. congress. >> reporter: massachusetts senator and former presidential candidate john kerry is now emerging as a new favorite for the job. senator collins said she would not have -- that kerry would not have any trouble winning confirmation. >> interesting there. >> yeah, it is. >> signal. >> also, what you are seeing in politics is fascinating. now speculation out there the reason the republicans are trying to derail susan price is that john kerry will get it next which frees up the senate seat and allows scott brown who lost to elizabeth warren to get back to capitol hill. >> chess match. >> who knows. susan rice was working for the state department when there was the bombing of the embassy in africa in '98. susan collins rightfully said, now, wait a minute, you've been in two situation
clinton. monica crowley, fox news contributor. i it's the thing to do. you get a call. >> president obama has a pattern of inviting political opponents, business leaders to the white house for some sort of confab. what it kals end ends up being is a photo opportunity so he looks like he's extending himself to the opposition, he's bipartisan, and he is neither of those things. bill: would you accept that invite. >> i would accept in a heartbeat. bill: monica is saying nada on this. >> i would be more optimistic on this. we are groping for bi-partisanship. if governor romney has things to share and ways to bridge the fiscal cliff this is all good. bill: we went back to the vault to figure out what they are not going to talk about. we found this first of all, okay. i want you to listen to. roll it. >> i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i had a friend who said you don't just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers. bill: i've been in business 25 years. i've got no idea what you're talking about. >> actually those points may come up. bill: yo

candidate, at one point, from hillary clinton to barack obama, from john kerry to john edwards, all of them, they all played for their plan with this simple phrase, "rolling back the bush tax cuts." they've been doing it for eight years. so politically, that's why the president has to draw that line in the sand. >> he draws that line in the sand, but harold ford, what happens when republicans, at least a small number of them, go ahead and raise taxes on the top 2% and then turn to the white house and say, okay. now we'll move. and then they have to talk about how they're going to slash spending in medicare, to save medicare, how they'll have to slash spending in medicaid to save medicaid. their political problem on the other side of this tax debate is so much bigger than the republican problem. they're being too clever by half here. >> both sides have complicated hands. and if the democrats, we achieve what the president and some democrats in the senate are asking for in a narrow way around taxes, you're absolutely right. just as an aside on the bush era, this is the first time we didn't go

that obama is really appearing to really work with the republican, really reaches out. neil: he did a number of things that make it seem that way, i might consider raising taxes not up to clinton rate, i might look at spending issues now. >> he will want to raise taxes, but he will consider looking at some spending cuts, but not deep enough to where it will matter. neil: overture? we -- this is not announced but just rumors, we might not have to go back up to highest clinton rate, we could split the difference. >> i just don't see with him holding so much, i do not see -- i think it is inevitable we might either fall off the cliff or it will be up until the deadline. neil: you know the value by the way, in bringing more republicans under your cabinet? is that you not only think about your legacy, you really are trying to move the ball forward. you start putting republicans to your cabinet or those uniquely skilled to do etch and everything in your cabinet, we know what happens when you don't have the right people. >> what is best for this country is what matters the most, i have to say, i be
